the obama administration done enough on climate change and what do you want them to do in the next four years? >> i'm going to be candid with you, none of us have done enough. my comments about climate challenge was about some of what the governors are doing in the northeast and what we're doing along the coast of california and washington state that don't necessarily have oil and fossil fuel resources. >> i'm going to jump in because we're going we're having a little bit of a signal problem. it was breaking up so we apologize for that. let me go back to your point about environmental issues and global warming because you point out it was a huge issue in the campaign, something the president promised to do more. >> we haven't seen a lot of action in the first four years but i feel like there is a couple of issues on the wish list, if you will, that i feel like the obama administration hasn't engaged on. whether it is gun control or immigration reform, we haven't seen a serious immigration reform proposal with the examination of the dream act. there are these issues that the administrati
to focus on climate change. as the obama administration done enough of climate change? >> none of us have done enough. governors are no different than members of congress. we come from different regions of the country. my comment about climate change was more about what some of the governors are doing in the northeast and along the coast that do not necessarily half fossil fuel resources. >> we're having a little bit of a signal problem. we're going to have to fix that and come back to you in a couple of minutes. we apologize. let me go to your point about environmental issues and global warning. it was a huge issue in the campaign, something the president promised to do more in 2013 or 2014. >> we have not seen a lot of action. there are a couple of these issues on the liberal wish list that i feel like the obama administration has not quite in gauge on. whether it is gun-control or immigration reform. there are these issues that the end of lustration has not quite in gauge on. -- that the administration has not quite engaged on. >> it was likely a very strategic decision why some of the
think the obama administration should be trying to press israel will abstain? >> i think what the obama administration needs to do is -- you know the mideast is in chaos right now and israel is going to be affected a versely by that. what i think the obama administration needs to do is become more hands on in trying to promote arab israeli peace, peace between the israelis and the palestinians. that involved a whole lot more things than just settlements. and i think it was a mistake for instance for president obama in his first term to come out and make the fight on settlements. every administration in the united states has opposed settlements because they create facts on the ground that promote opportunities for peace. but it was a mistake for him to go out and say no more settleme settlements, no more expansion settlements and the secretary of state said the same thing and the minute they push back they cave. if you're going to take that position, you don't cave. but i think what's needed is a hands on approach to the peace process, arab israeli peace involving everything, not just se
of the obama administration. the epa now has gained control over everything. see so to have been deemed a pollution, dangerous to the environment in co2 is of course that these plans. they attempt to surprise or two epitomize the anti-nature, enterprise spirit of this administration. the reason we need another supply-side revival of the same kind we had under ronald reagan. >> would you change anything you wrote in the original "wealth and poverty"? >> i would've changed quite a lot. there's all kinds of details that a changed. but i found that to try to change one thing would be to change everything. so you know, you get into the morass of editorial work. so instead of changing an essentially retained the old look and added 40,000 new words at the beginning and kind and revision of my monetary policy in the middle. it's a new book, but it contains the old book veered >> pennysaver bishop monetary policy, what do you mean by that? >> i failed to make clear in the original version of "wealth and poverty" that i believe can stable currencies. i don't believe including current these. i agr
pressure on this issue. do you think the obama administration should be doing more to try to press israel? >> well, i think what the obama administration needs do if they -- you know, the middle east is in chaos right now, and israel's going to be affected by that. and it's going to be affected in my view adversely by that. so i think what the administration needs to do is before more hands on and try to promote arab/israeli peace. that involves a whole lot more things than just settlements, and i think it was a mistake, for instance, for president obama in the first term to make -- fight on settlements. evan everybody in the united states don't want settlements but it was a mistake for him to go out and say no morriset morrisetteleme morrisettelement. as soon as it was push back, they caved. if you're going to take that position, you don't case. i think what's needed is a hands-on approach involved everything. not just settlements, but everything el. get the parties back to the table-talking east. it's an axiom. if there not peace talks going on. >> finally in iran do, you think obama's
americans, too, get a tax cut. the obama administration is happening what happens for the aying american families. we have congressman randy forbes. >> let me ask you something. do you feel like a president actually wants this to happen so that it gives him some political ad vantage? >> i have to judge that by two things. first of all what i am hearing from my colleagues on the democratic leadership side they said they wanted to go over the fiscal cliff because we have argued all along they will start by simply taxing everybody over 250,000. they told me they wouldn vote fr anything that would tax everybody over 150,000. you take the president's actions. the president doesn't want to get an agreement or compromise he wants to get his way. he won't come to the table with any serious proposal because we can get a solution everybody can live with. >>> they have a bit of a messaging problem. i don't understand why there's not more of a conversation that starts with the fact these taxes go up. democrats would not extend what has been a republican proposal to keep them low. they are in place n

obama's administration faces a new challenge now. forming the cabinet. he wants new faces so the cabinet wouldn't look like a, quote, second stringers. he's already facing opposition from republicans. here's emily schmidt. >> reporter: a white house photo op. >> this is an opportunity to meet with my wonderful cabinet. >> reporter: an imminent cabinet shuffle is expected. >> the president has got a lot of very good people to choose from, but he wants to put together a team, especially in international affairs, a team overall that going into the second term doesn't look like a group of second stringers. >> reporter: it's already politically charges. susan rice is thought to be a leading contender, but some republicans have been highly critical of rice following the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they even got a problem with me. >> senator mccain. >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> senator jokingly gave the post to senator john kerry. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent
in the past two years, we've applied a considerable influence inartfully. the obama administration vacillated back and forth on what the policy was on whether to get rid of mubarak. even behind the scenes i don't think we've applied sufficient pressure on the military. the key leverage we have that the administration has is the threat to withhold funding. i must say if they don't get the message in the military from that, congress, when it comes back into session after the first of the year, i think is going to take a very close look at that. if the military wants to continue american assistance they should listen to the administration. that is to say if the administration is talking to them and not supporting morsi for his role in things like the hamas-israel cease-fire which was announced the day before morsi announced his decree. >> they did that the day after sitting down with with secretary of state hillary clinton. >> he clearly, morsi clearly felt emboldened to take that step. what president obama in six telephone conversation with president morsi before the cease-fire, as you said sec

of the reason why the obama administration has done in the views of many so little toward getting president assad out, and that's because they are just really afraid. syria looks -- syria would be so much worse. you saw the break-up of iraq after the united states invasion in 2003. syria would be that times 10. and there's a lot of worry about what are you going to do with that? you have a worry about the slaughter of the allies in the mountains. you have to worry about just this whole break-up and who would govern this region that is so, so -- this country that is so critical for the whole region. but i do think, though, that chemical weapons would be sort of -- that -- i think for the obama administration, that's a line that they would have trouble defending their passivity so far if assad crossed. that's a hard one. it's hard for me to imagine them not doing anything. >> but given that they haven't really done very much over the past 21 months, and they haven't done very much at all, it's not implausible that they would not do the declarative thing of invading or stopping the use of chem
cuts, the obama administration has finally allowed the pentagon to start planning how to implement them. the white house had steadfastly argued it was a waste of time to plan for cuts that might never happen. but with negotiations appearing to be stalled and doubtless to pressure them, the administration has cleared government departments to start preparing. the administration says the pentagon has little flexibility and that the budget control act calls for uniform cuts to every program, project or activity to total about $5 hundred billion. -- $500 billion. given the. has exempted military personnel, cuts of about 9% would hit programs, operations, civilians and benefits over the coming ten years. it's the abruptness and the thoughtlessness ever the cuts that make them problematic. the pentagon can cut more. it just needs more time and less mindless rules to do so. could sequestration still be avoided? yes, lawmakers could strike a deal at the last minute to keep it from happening or stop it shortly after it takes effect. but no matter what happens with sequestration, d.o.d. should us
ditch attempt to save itself, an act the obama administration has warned could trigger military intervention. >> worst-case scenarios are threatening to become reality. >> it's to the going to be a clean outcome. in the best of circumstances. now it will be chaotic and messy. >> the u.s. is helping to organize the opposition's military command and later this week is expected to officially recognize its political leadership. what impact that has on the outcome of the civil war remains to be seen. >> david martin, thank you. in egypt the concession offered late yesterday by president mohammed morsi has failed to satisfy hits opponents. and tonight the regime appears to be preparing for the long haul. allen pizzey is in cairo. >> in a scene of chaotic as the country's politics, egypt's main opposition group its tonight rejected the constitution drawn up by the government, along with a referendum on it scheduled for next week en. in doing so they also said no to a form of compromise offered by president mohammed morsi who late last night rescinded a decree giving him unlited powers.
. >> reporter: and just why would the obama administration balk at enforcing federal laws that have been on the books for decades. there is the political consideration. >> here you've got two states that went for president obama, colorado was a swing state. the people of those states have spoken and for the federal government now to come in and say, we want to quash your popular mandate, there are political risks to doing that. >> reporter: there is also some precedent from medical marijuana, which is already legal in 18 states and the district of columbia. but don't think that even medical marijuana is exempt from possible department of justice scrutiny. a case decided by the supreme court during the bush administration says the feds can go after that too. president obama also said earlier this year that we're not going to be legalizing weed anytime soon. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> joe, thank you very much. >>> egypt's president is trying to diffuse the biggest crisis he's faced. about an hour ago, mohamed morsi canceled a decree giving him sweeping powers which ignited furious demo

's a map of the project which the obama administration says would drive a wedge in the palestinians west bank and cut off east jerusalem from the rest of the west bank. my question is will israel develop that chunk or are you using that as a bargaining chip to say to the palestinians, you make trouble for us in the u.n. and international bodies, this is what we may do. if you don't, maybe we won't. >> the map is misleading. you saw the yellow chunk. that's a suburb where 40,000 israelis live. it's less than two miles of baron desert road from that suburb to jerusalem. that's e1, the road. and we have to worry about a situation in the future where the suburb could be cut off from jerusalem. it doesn't cut off the west bank. you can get from ramallah to bethlehem in the south by going around e-1. if there's true peace between us and the palestinians the problem is solved by a cloverleaf or tunnel underneath the road that links them to jerusalem but it was a way the israel government set down a marker. the palestinians violated agreements with us and united states by going to the u.n. all a
might have happened if the obama administration had intervened early by imposing a no-fly zone at very little cost and risk to the united states over syria, if assad had been gone 12 months ago fwe were now in the midst of a transitional process with an opposition that hadn't been radicallized by the influx from jordan, iraq, from elsewhere. instead, we're having not only the syrian meltdown with serious consequences, but hundreds of thousands of refugees in turkey, destabilization of jordan and increasing inability in lebanon and this is spilling out all over the region, paul. >> paul: what about the president's red lines on-- president obama's red lines, so-called, on syrian chemical weapons before he said, if they move these chemical weapons there will be consequences and now they've dropped the moved argument and they're now saying if he uses those chemical weapons. are we seeing a backtracking from the the united states? >> i think the backtracking to our default position which is to do nothing at all. i think it's justifiable that they may have moved these and we don't know why,
that marijuana is everybody and america is the largest jailer per capita in the world. we are hoping the obama administration will take opportunity on second administration lame duck working on legacy to say hey, the voters -- the citizens voted in these two states. let's let the states work it out. >> geraldo: that's vivian mcpeak and trip keebler weren't you a federal prosecutor in that very office? >> i'm going to tell you they are not going to let this go and happen in the state. no, the feds can come in, as you know, as you just said and trump anything that the state does. >> controlled substances abuse act into federal law? >> right. when i was a federal prosecutor we had a zero tolerance program came in from the border of canada. put in jail for a day. record was expunged. little bit of a sign. >> >> do you think the fed are going to do that even the majority. >> attorney's office, yes. >> you have got 18 states passing medical marijuana already. a third the american people. isn't the writing on the wall here, this prohibition of marijuana is over? >> i really think is, look. you do as
or leaving. >> reporter: how many will end up in america? there is criticism of the obama administration and they feel it has been too muted in terms of the violence we see now and what the new government is doing to protect the minorities, such as the coptic christians. >> reporter: thank you. earlier in our program, 100,000 have fled, recently. so clearly, more are coming. thank you. >> jamie: we are celebrating the trail blazers of human space flight. it's been 40 years since the last mission to the moon, capping off an incredible run for the american space program. this is one of the original pioneer who is ventured into the unknown, rusty schwicart, he sits down with us next. >> hipety, hopety, hipety, hopety, over the hill, land hill. da-da-da-da-da-da-da-dah. hipety hopety along. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes co
and show it. the map of the project which the obama administration says would drive a wedge into the heart of the palestinian west bank, possibly cut off east jerusalem from the rest of the west bank and my question is, will israel develop that little chunk, e-1, or are you using that as a bargaining chip, to say to the palestinians, look, you made trouble for us in the u.n. and international bodies, and, this is what we may do. if you don't, maybe we won't. >> the map is a little misleading. the yellow chunk there is actually a suburb, and, 40,000 israelis live there. it is about -- less than two miles stretch of barren desert road from the suburb to jerusalem. e-1 is the road. and we have to worry about a situation in the future where the suburb could be cut off from jerusalem. you see on the map it doesn't cut off the west bank, you can get from ramala in the north, bethlehem in the south by going around e-1 and if there is true peace, the problem is solved by a clover leaf or tunnel going beneath the road that links the suburb with jerusalem. but, you said it best, it was the way the i
in america." senate came on record. so why the obama administration is doing something that the bush administration failed to do is beyond my understanding. and we're going to do everything we can to prevent it from happening. >> you may remember that back in 2007, your then senatorial colleague, barack obama wrote a strong letter to the republican chairman of the fcc who wanted to change the rules, just like genachowski is doing now. and he condemned the very tactics that his own fcc chairman is employing today. >> absolutely. and we hope the president will get involved in this issue. so i don't-- to be honest with you, i don't know the internal dynamics of why what is happening is happening. i know you got a couple of republicans on the board, who are very sympathetic to moving forward toward more consolidation. but why genachowski is taking the position he is, i don't know. but i think it would be very helpful. and we will try to get the president to remember what he said four or five years ago. >> you said a moment ago that you recall these hearings that were held across the coun
's interesting that the obama administration is not defending the law with the justice department. is that significant? >> it's very significant. it's pretty unusual. it happens once in a while. obama's come out and said, we've looked at this. it's a legal issue that we've looked at and it is an unconstitutional statute so we're not going to defend it. could be a political thing, too. >> what does that mean for gay people if the defense of marriage act is struck down in this country? >> it just means that we're going to have availability of benefits on the federal level. we have them on the state level for those states that have same-sex marriage. but it's not going to make it illegal not to have same-sex marriage. it will be a start in the right direction for full rights for gay people. >> for self-esteem and for -- as gay people say, pride, it would also mean a lot as well? >> it's the first step. and i think it's the right decision. >> thank you, karen. very interesting. argued in front of the supreme court. good stuff. >>> next here on cnn -- >> an nba legend sits down to talk
of it. >> schieffer: let's talk about the more immediate things, and that is the next obama administration. one of the things that strikes me, and you brought it up in the green room a while ago joe we have not seen the administration nominate anybody. >> anybody. >> schieffer: to any office here. we're a month into-- after the election and we've had all the controversy over susan rice, and who know where's that that is? what's happening? what's going on here? >> well, the administration is, as it says, studying all its options. what it's trying to figure out a way if in fact it wants to make the susan rice fight which is visually going to be a difficult fight, and if it does, how hard will it fight and how far is it willing to push? there are those who argue look, if you put cbs news rice in the national security council and i will put senator kennedy up-- >> kerry. >> senator kerry from the senate up to nominate for secretary of state. the problem with that is tom donnell and the existing national security adviser doesn't want to leave and has no intention of going. that's
of the center of american progress who served in the obama and clinton administrations, policy director of hillary clinton's campaign. laura flanders, founder of grittv.com. the editor of salon.com and the woman who hired me two years ago. thanks, as always for that. >> of course. >> anyway, on friday afternoon, house speaker john boehner attempted to paint a picture of white house negotiations and how to avoid going over the fiscal curve. i have been saying fiscal slope. now on the show, i'll go with curve. >> this isn't a progress report because there's no progress to report. four days ago, we offered a serious proposal based on testimony from president clinton's former chief of staff. there's been no counter offer from the white house. instead, reports i understand kate the president adopted a deliberate strategy to slow walk the economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff. >> the extremely vague republican proposal did not include an increase in tax rates a position he reiterated on friday making clear there's no movement on the white house's red line on treasury secretary tim geithner
for secretary clinton and the director of the security counsel. what is the obama administration's red line on the chemical weapons? >> i think the president announced it last september and he repeated it last week. the secretary of state has done so as well. if check cal weapons are used, this becomes a red line and becomes something as the president said a few months ago, changes his cal cue louse. i think we have been out there very clearly saying that use chemical weapons and everything is going to change in terms of the possibility of american intervention. >> we have been talking about those words. what is the u.s. willing to do? are we specifically talking act boots on the ground? >> i suspect we are not talking boots on the ground. there are probably ways to get at this without that, probably from the air. i think we are probably also coordinating closely with turkey, jordan and israel because all of those countries have a profound concern, if in fact, chemical weapons are used or control is lost. >> when we talk about the chemical weapon, there's an article that says they are skept
